The book is based on an actual passenger of the Titanic, John Harper. I had not heard of Rev. Harper prior to reading this book so I did a little research on him and it made me all the more eager to see what was in store with the fictionalization of his story. Rev. Harper was a widower from England and traveling with his daughter, Nana to the USA to the Moody Institute in Chicago via the Titanic. The author portrays Rev. Harper just as I would imagine him myself, a person eager to share Jesus with everyone he met. For example, his home church grew from a mere 25 to over 500 under his time as it's pastor, a sure sign of a thriving church. While Rev. Harper is the primary character, most of the plot is seen through the eyes of Nana, and it's through her that we get to meet famous people such as the Astors who give her a tour of the ill-fated ship.

I loved this story for bringing attention to a person who is such a light to the Titanic story. Even as the ship was going down, Harper was fighting for souls. With his last breath he was leading people to the Lord (that part of the story is very true & his last convert lived to tell the tale!). The author did a fantastic job not just showing how Harper tried to win souls, but laid out the plan of salvation so plainly that even someone reading the book who is not a Christian could tell what it's all about.

The book included historical notes on Rev. Harper as well as a timeline of his life & study questions. I absolutely loved this book! We will definitely be reading it again, hopefully as a read-aloud (if I can keep from tearing up!).

I've enjoyed the mystique that is the Titanic since I was a young girl, I've always thought it'd be neat to be able to go down to the bottom of the ocean and see this graveyard. Since I can't go deep sea exploring the next best thing is to read stories, especially those that are based on fact, that instill faith and hope as well as stories from the Titanic. I've never read any in the series from which this book comes so I'm glad I started with this one, as it deals with a man of great faith, Rev. John Harper, his daughter and their time on the Titanic. I was caught up in the story from the first page and kept flipping my e-pages until the end, which was summed up with a nice mini-Bible study.

I could tell this was written for a young audience, but even I did not tire of it and hope to read it aloud to all my children in the next several days. I enjoyed the story and would love to find more out about John Harper and his daughter. I also aim to work through the Bible study with each of my children so that we can more understand our faith in the Lord - it really seemed to bring home the idea of Mr. Harper's belief in the Lord and him wanting those who didn't believe before the Titanic reached it's watery grave to find that Salvation. If you are looking for a way to teach the Titanic and instill values that have been shared with others from across time then this is a great book and will pique your child's interest and maybe even yours.

**Disclaimer: I was provided an e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.
